Comment Re:One vote for AUS/NZ Plug (Score 0) 1174

yes our plug really is quite good, your not going to get phase and neutral the wrong way around with these without a hammer.

i find the two streight pin ones from the united states are good for say my camera charger which has a very small light plug. but ive used one with a huge ac/dc brick on it which kept falling out of the socket.

and the british one is huge and clunky.

but my favorite is those screw on 4 phase plugs for businesses yeah.

It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Mark your calendar: Pretend to be a Time Traveler (

Iron Condor writes: Dresden Codac comes up with this clever idea for a "Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day" (Dec-08) on the Koala Wallop forum.

"Remember, the only real rule is staying in character and try to fit in. Never directly admit you're a time traveler, and make really, really bad attempts at keeping a low profile."
Some of the suggestions include such gems as "Show extreme ignorance in operating regular technology. Pay phones should be a complete mystery (try placing the receiver in odd places). Chuckle knowingly at cell phones." or "Stand in front of a statue (any statue, really), fall to your knees, and yell "NOOOOOOOOO" ".

I figured the /. crowd would be exactly the kind of folks who'd get into that kind of thing (I know that I do).


Submission + - GPL Lawsuit Continues Despite Report Of Settlement

ScottAS writes: According to various Online outlets, of which include Slashdot.Org, it was reported yesterday that a lawsuit pertaining to a violation of the GNU General Public License (GPL) had been settled.

Ravicher, a Legal Director stated; "I can confirm that we are discussing settlement, but, contrary to what many in the press seem to believe, no agreement has been reached. Simply coming into compliance now is not sufficient to settle the matter, because that would mean anyone can violate the License until caught, because the only punishment would be to come into compliance."
